After nine years in a Liberty wagon my wife threw down an ultimatum: "Too big, too black - I miss the wrx."
The brief was simple, something small and yellow.
The solution was just as simple and a perfect excuse to get something fun to complement the snow-friendly Subie.
We are not exactly new to the quirks of Renault, having previously owned a 4 and a 12, but a manual Clio Cup is the first real performer.
The Liberty is, as you would expect, quicker, but the little yella fella is way more fun on our many local twisties.
Thanks to everyone for the information gleaned while lurking for the past three months.
